Compagnia Baccalà



Compagnia Baccalà [[was born from the union of Simone Fassari (him) and Camilla Pessi (her). They ran away from the circus they were in, created Pss Pss, and the rest is history. Winner of 14 international prizes, unique, funny, virtuoso and very charming, Pss Pss has been performed over 700 times in over 50 countries and on all 5 continents to huge acclaim. Poetic, surreal, and infinitely enjoyable, their work transports us without words to the seriousness and innocence of childhood.///ist aus dem Zusammenschluss von Simone Fassari (er) und Camilla Pessi (sie) geboren.

Forget the red noses … delightful, light-hearted and hilarious.
The Times

[An] outstandingly funny duo [with] exceptional circus skills.
The Stage

Taking inspiration from Keaton, Fellini and of course Chaplin … their timeless performance of hilarious mishaps and outstanding acrobatics is utterly charming.
Mumble Comedy

Heart-stealing classic clowning at the very top of their game.
The List

Just rush to go see … every bit as funny and touching as Chaplin, Keating or Tati
Vancouver Observer

The chemistry is terrific … not only skilled; they’re extremely charming clowns.
